I have been to Shanghai Chic on 2 occasions in the last couple of months. The first was a big group of us on a Tuesday evening for the chefs table menu. The drinks were kept flowing and the food came out at perfect intervals. A selection of dishes were brought out at the intervals and we were able to... More

I have eaten chinese all over the world (including China,) and this was one of the best. The food is cooked to order in courses, so no buffet where it is just left on the side. They are not relly geared up for a la carte, the pricing structure is such that the choice is "all you can eat with... More

We did not want for anything. The black beef tenderloin was AMAZING. Love love loved it. Sushi was cool. Some stuff was deep fried... More

Food quality was allright. We had the tasting menu. All you can eat with drinks included. Too ecpensive for what it was. Too spicy for our youngest child and no real child friendly alternatives...

Frankly speaking, I have never expected this place so extremely remarkable and truly worth visiting. When looking through the list of restaurants and books, there is plenty of choice and the is particular place seems to simply stay ahead of the resr. Offering "unlimited taste nights", for a fixed price is something that simply beats any buffet for a good... More
